Bauhaus’s beloved David J is reeling in the strange and unusual with Outliers: Mexican Bootleg Vol. 2. Featuring a repeating drone over found field recordings, whispering messages, the bizarre collection delves into layered experimentation, leaving a sea of questions in its wake. Who are the mystery people passionately chattering about politics in the background? What does the electronic pattern overlay communicate? Is this whole experience a guided hypnosis into the spirit realm?
For those familiar with Frank Tovey’s Easy Listening For The Hard of Hearing, David J’s noodlings, particularly on Paper or Plastic?, dwell in a realm of open mindset and altered state, dotted with recordings of Alan Watts and the oddball compositions of Raymond Scott. It’s not a collection for the faint of heart, but it’s certainly worth an open-minded listen.
